FOR SOME REASON I JUST DONT BUY THIS STORY. I have seen a lot of crazy stuff lately - videos with them hacking women to pieces (I do research on this HISTORICALLY BRUTAL GANG - ZETAS, because I have family in mexico) and I'm telling you, drugs and guns and trafficking of 8 year olds is happening right there on camera in front of everyone and it's hard to believe this thug is the one behind it all. He's a patsy. What do you guys think? On a site called "documenting reality.com they post their videos. I like horror movies but this is real, and I couldn't watch it - I vomited and then could not watch any more of the video. It's nearly impossible to believe the richest man in the world lives there and is DOING NOTHING ABOUT THIS!

MEXICO CITY — Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, head of the brutal Zetas drug cartel, was captured in northern Mexico on Monday, authorities said.
Trevino Morales, known as “Z-40,” was nabbed near the border city of Nuevo Laredo, in the biggest victory in President Enrique Pena Nieto’s efforts against cartels.

Morales, 40, was pinched before dawn Monday by Mexican Marines who used a helicoper to intercept a pickup truck on a dirt road in the countryside outside of Nuevo Laredo, which has long served as the Zetas’ base of operations. Morales was taken into custody along with a bodyguard and an accountant, government spokesman Eduardo Sanchez told reporters. They were carrying $2 million.
Morales took control of the Zetas following the death of group founder Heriberto Lazcano in October 2012.
